Event description

Description

Join Danielle Wood, Fellow at the Grattan Institute as she speaks about 'Regional Patterns in Economic Development'.

Opportunities, economic growth, unemployment, and population shifts are not distributed evenly across Australia. Many believe that Australia’s regions are getting a raw deal relative to the large capital cities. But the data tells a more nuanced story. In this presentation Danielle will present a range of data, including from the latest Census, examining differences in economic outcomes across Australia.

Danielle has extensive experience in advising on economic policy issues. Her research and advocacy efforts focus on tax and budget policy, intergenerational inequality and competition policy. Previously, Danielle worked at the ACCC as the Principal Economist and Director of Merger Investigations, as a Senior Consultant at NERA Economic Consulting and as a Senior Research Economist at the Productivity Commission.

Danielle has a Masters of Commerce (Hons) and a Masters in Competition Law (Hons) from the University of Melbourne and a Bachelor of Economics (Hons) from the University of Adelaide. She is the National and Victorian Chair of the Women in Economics Network. She sits on the Victorian and Central Council for the Economic Society of Australia.

Please arrive five to ten minutes prior to 11am as the event will start on time.

Talking Economics showcases economic policy at work in DEDJTR and features thought-leaders in economics through a bi-monthly speaker series. The content will be pitched at a level that all staff can understand, no matter of level of your economic literacy.
